VICTOR TANGO - the off side number came adrift during the running. Stewards questioned Driver J Morrison regarding the tactics he adopted on the final bend when he elected to vacate the trailing position and shift outwards nearing the 300 metres as opposed to waiting for the passing lane which would have been available to him on entering the home straight. Mr Morrison explained that VICTOR TANGO lacks high speed and he was of the impression the leader, NUI MAY TAU, was under pressure due to it hanging outwards and being under a drive and he would be best served to gain clear racing room when the opportunity presented itself rather than being held up by a tiring runner prior to the passing lane becoming available. After considering the explanation tendered by Mr Morrison, Stewards noted his comments.
